i recently removed sygate as it appeared to slow down my internet speed. i am currently using the firewall in teh security centre (sp2) provided by Microsoft. iv heard about zonealarm aswell. which is the best to use? also what can i do to maximise internet efficiency. i recently have noticed a dramatic slowing down of internet speed even though i regulary run disc cleanup and clear cookies nearly every 3 days. thankyou
I doubt if your firewall would have any impact on you net connection speed,Za is a good firewall but me personally i prefere the one you uninstalled, sygate and it has never slowed my net speed down if you speed as dropped really slow you could try a spy ware scan to see if there is anything using the bandwidth and connecting without your knowledge.
